Hi all,

I did a LOT of trading this year. Very stupid I know. Anyway, I have a large loss. The problem is that I've been keeping track of all my traders with Microsoft Money. Now when I use the program to calculate my short term gains it is telling me that I lost far more then is possible.

For example...I know I started with 100,000. I now have about 50,000 left. However it is telling me that I have about 75,000 in losses.

I am currently all in cash so the difference can't be the value of any stocks I'm holding. (Not holding any)

Can anyone explain this or is the program just wrong????

Thank you for your help!!!
